As I mentioned before, Cesium has outgrown its mission statement:
Our mission is to create the leading web-based globe and map for visualizing dynamic data. We strive for the best possible performance, precision, visual quality, ease of use, platform support, and content.
As a kickoff to our code sprint, I’d like to propose we update the mission statement to reflect the current and future state of Cesium. We’ll have a live discussion on this thread between now and 5:30pm EST. At least the following Cesium team members are currently on this thread:
- Matt Amato
- Dan Bagnell
- Sarah Chow
- Tom Fili
- Gabby Getz
- Sean Lilley
- Hannah Pinkos
To start the discussion, consider this update to the mission statement:
Our mission is to create the leading web-based globe and map. We strive for the best possible static and time-dynamic content, performance, precision, visual quality, and ease of use.
This simply widens the scope beyond “for visualizing dynamic data” since this only represents a fraction of Cesium’s use cases. This also puts “content” at the start of the second sentence since - above all other things - Cesium is about visualizing 3D content (CZML, glTF, 3D Tiles, and all the formats before Cesium). Finally, “platform support” was dropped since it is implicit in “web-based.”
Please provide feedback with an eye on keeping the mission statement concrete, short, and focused. Note that the mission statement isn’t necessarily the same thing as a short tagline on the website.
